The primary transesophageal echocardiography services an anesthesiologist might document are probe placement, interpretation, placement and interpretation, and intraoperative monitoring, according to Anesthesia Business Consultants President and CEO Tony Mira.

A transesophageal echocardiogram may be performed to help diagnose heart or blood vessel diseases or conditions, to guide cardiac catheterization or to prepare a patient for surgery, according to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute.

Anesthesia providers might also perform these other services involving TEE:

1. Doppler echocardiography, pulsed wave and/or continuous wave with spectral display

2. 3D rendering with interpretation and reporting of CT, MRI, ultrasound or other tomographic modality with image postprocessing under concurrent supervision — not requiring image post-processing on an independent workstation

3. 3D rendering with interpretation and reporting of CT, MRI ultrasound or other tomographic modality with image postprocessing under concurrent supervision — requiring image post-processing on an independent workstation
